For this challenge, you must clear out 15 infestations for the reward of a cool liveried sports car.
Infestations are usually in houses but can be at camp sites and fields etc, and are easily spotted on your map by the big red blood splash around the area where an they are.

To clear them out you have to Kill around 10-15 zombies that come from the infested area, as well as an alpha or 2, usually screamers, and ferals, with the occasional bloater. (don't worry, no juggernauts here)

Easy tactics is to get a car and sound the horn around the area and just let them run out towards you for the splatter, or for more of a challenge get stuck in with some CQC. (2x4 not recommended) warning Once cleared you get a notification on screen and the Blood splash disappears from the map.

to complete the challenge, do this 15 times before the end of may (2015) and a sweet unique sports car is yours, which can be collected from the radio menu in game once you have a base set up at the cost of 250 influence.

Happy Hording. toast
Dexter XBADo you know if the sports car is available on new playthroughs as well or is it only available once in your current game?
And is there any way to trigger infestations? I've only found 2 in the last few hours...

ziplobthudI have had my hands on the game for around 3 weeks now and I'm finding breakdown the best for infestations. What I did was left the area up in the north east of the map untouched, and by the time I got up there, there was already 3 infestations, so left it alone, came back the next day and 2-3 more and so on till there was about 9-10, so recommend leaving areas till they build up. They don't come up very often, but I was aware of the challenge coming up. So I let them build up. Worked similar on 360 version. If struggling just drive around and you will find some. Hope that helps a little.

Dexter XBAAnd I can confirm that the sports car is available on new playthroughs as well (once per playthrough for 250 influence points).

MC PHILABUSTAWhen do these start to appear ?
Posted by MC PHILABUSTA on 11 May 15 at 21:29
ziplobthudThey can appear from as soon as you set a home base, I have also noticed that since release the number of infestations does look to have increased.

slysyIs it too late to get this realistically if i haven't started the game yet? Can anyone give me tips on getting this in a short amount of time, starting right from the beginning of the game please?

ziplobthudIf you start now its not too late, if you start up breakdown, and keep playing but don't complete it. There seems to be a lot more infestations happening then normal. Can get it done, along with the breakdown achievements in about 10 hours.

DrMmmPieI know you only have twoesh hours left, but you could still get a good few, if not all. although you do have to re-start your game. Once you first get to the church, there is two close to it takes about 15mins to get to this point so if you are super quick you could just about pull it off.

mcnichoj^ Wow, wish I knew that before. Wasted hours playing Breakdown hoping Infestations would pop up and then when they would pop up, not being able to find them. Just restarting a new game and rinse and repeat.
